Please help us welcome new members to the MISD Family!
Mrs. Diane Bode joins the MISD faculty as the new Career and Technology teacher at Mason High School. Mrs. Bode was born and raised in Denton, Texas. After graduating high school from the Hockaday School in Dallas she attended the University of North Texas and graduated with a B.B.A. in Marketing. She met her husband, Clay, who at the time played football for the Eagles. They were married shortly after college graduation and have been married for 27 years. They have 2 sons: Collin (27) graduated in 2011 from San Antonio MacArthur and Ryan (24) graduated from Lago Vista in 2014.
This will be Mrs. Bode's 25th year in education. She has taught Business, Marketing, Finance and Computer CTE courses at Judson ISD, New Braunfels ISD, Northeast ISD, Lago Vista ISD and Pflugerville ISD. She also worked at Judson ISD as an Instructional Technology Specialist. Mr. Bode will be coaching football and track at Marble Fall High School this year.
Mr. and Mrs. Bode are both very active in both the Texas High School Coaches Association and the Texas High School Coaches Wives Association where they have help worked the annual summer convention for the past 20 years. They also co-host the Hill Country Football Clinic in Fredericksburg with Coach Moffett and his wife Cara and brother-in-law Coach Zane Bode and his wife Cynthia.
The Bodes have always loved the hill country and the Mason community. In 2001, they built their farmhouse which is located in Pontotoc on Mr. Bode's Great-Grandmother's property. Their entire family enjoys hunting and they raise goats and coastal hay. The 2 llamas and the 2 miniature donkeys are primarily just Mrs. Bode’s outdoor pets. The Bodes are very excited to have the opportunity to now live at their farm full-time, and they finally feel that they are back “home.”
